Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, the 45th overall pick in the 2012 draft, signed a four-year deal with the Bears. He's expected to compete to be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Marshall as a rookie.
Jeffery started 33 of 40 games in three seasons (2009-11) and established school records with 3,042 receiving yards on 183 receptions (16.6-yard average) with 23 touchdowns. The 6-3, 216-pound receiver tied Sidney Rice for South Carolina's career touchdown reception record and his 183 catches are topped only by Kenny McKinley's 207.
